What Do You Want?
Typical answers range anywhere from; I want to win the lottery, be happy, find my life’s partner, have a house on the beach, quit my job, lose weight, all the way to – I don’t really know what I want anymore.
And, that last response is closest to the truth than any of the other answers.
Most people simply don’t know what they want. Even if they do know what they really, really want – 97% of them won’t pursue their dreams.
Why? Because they don’t believe they can really have what they want.
When I coach people I ask them to tell me about their relationship. I’ll say, tell me what you have, what is your relationship like?
Then I ask them, if you could have the perfect relationship, tell me what it is you would want in a partner. What do you value in a relationship, what is it that is really important to you?
Next I ask them to explain to me what would be a “deal breaker” in a relationship? Is it cheating, lying, laziness, addiction, disrespect or whatever? What is it that you would absolutely not want to have or to tolerate?
Now here’s the best part. Ironically, what they don’t want is exactly what they have!!! The irony is so palpable that it is one of those “ah ha” moments.
Well, it’s the same thing in life. Think about your life. Think about what you’d really like your life to look like. Now think about what you don’t want in your life.
Again, what you don’t want is usually what you have.
Now granted, it may not be in every area that is lacking but that is because you don’t believe you can have it all.
The key is to start with one aspect of your life whether it’s physical, spiritual, financial, or emotional, choose one area and think about how you would like to live your life.
Given the form in which I’m writing this will have to be the cliff note version of “how to.” If I went into depth it would be too lengthy.
So here you go….Dig deep down and decide what it is you want. Get a very clear picture. Think about it often. Visualize it. Pray about it. Then believe you can achieve it and expect it.
Now, those last 36 words I just typed can either simply be words on paper or they can change your life. It is 100% up to you to take action to implement any kind of change or just continue down the road you’re on and do nothing different.
It all comes down to one thing. What do you really want?
